B065:
Spatial-temporal Dynamics of Natural Forests, Industrial Plantations and Woody Plant Encroachment





Session ID#: 27162

Session Description:
Large areas of natural forests have been converted into industrial tree plantations. Woody plant encroachment (WPE) into native grasslands have also occurred globally. The resultant spatial-temporal dynamics of natural forests, industrial plantations and WPE have substantial impacts on carbon and water cycles, climate and biodiversity from local to global scales. This session aims to highlight recent activities that map and characterize the spatial-temporal dynamics of natural forests, industrial plantations and WPE across tropical, subtropical and warm temperate zones. It welcome diverse contributions that (1) use multi-sensor and/or time series remote sensing data to generate annual maps of natural forests, industrial plantations, and WPE in the last few decades; (2) analyze climate, socio-economic, and policy factors that drive observed spatial-temporal dynamics of natural forests, industrial plantations, and WPE; and (3) assess the consequences (e.g., carbon and water cycles, biodiversity) of observed spatial-temporal dynamics of natural forests, industrial plantations, and WPE.
